Verizon BlackBerry models now offer Push-to-Talk
Verizon has released an app for BlackBerry models on its network that offers Push-to-Talk functionality. In exchange for giving Big Red every month, that green rectangle with the picture of Abe Lincoln on it ($5), you will be able to use the PTT feature to arrange group calls with up to 50 recipients, manage PTT for your entire company online and use the Presence feature to see who is available to get your PTT call. And here's something that the iPhone can't do-while you are on a Push-to-Talk call, you can still browse the web and read your email. Now you will be able to spot Verizon branded 'Berry models at the construction site.

VZW has had PTT for awhile, they just introduced it to the Blackberry. Last time I checked Nextel was the only other one with PTT on Blackberry., correct me if I'm wrong.
